A warm welcome to…
If you enjoy a good mystery, like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories, then Ray Moore’s Reverend Lyle Thorne mystery stories are for you. Once a member of the Metropolitan Police, the Reverend Lyle Thorne now fills his days helping his flock avoid the pitfalls of life and solving mysteries that come his way. Set in the small fictitious town of Sanditon on the South Coast of Britain during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain, these stories follow the tone set by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle of a quirky detective, a great mystery, and a twist at the end. If you love Downton Abbey these stories will enthrall you. Slip a Reverend Lyle Thorne book in your pocket or download an eBook to your reading device before you leave the house. It’s just the thing for a quick 30 minute read. Each book contains 5 short stories and each mystery tempts the reader to solve the mystery before reaching the end of the tale.
